What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is an FDA-approved medication designed to treat Type II diabetes. Off-label, it can be injected once a week to help obese and overweight patients shed pounds and reclaim their energy and stamina. In clinical trials, Tirzepatide was shown to assist patients in losing 15-20% of their excess weight over the course of about a year and a half.

How does Tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide combines two types of medications, GLP-1 receptor agonists and GIP receptor agonists, to become a dual GLP-1/GIP receptor agonist. GLP-1 and GIP are both hormones that the body releases to quell the appetite after eating. Tirzepatide works by imitating these hunger-suppressing hormones, telling the pancreas to release insulin after meals and directing the liver to reduce glucose output. The end result is that the patient feels fuller, faster, and longer, has less of an appetite, and is able to lose weight.
